2011 Bakersfield March Meet Tony Noto Grumpy's Toy Crash
Real bummer this car crashed. Tony Noto in his 1974 Grumpy's Toy Vega Pro
Stock replica. This was hands down my favorite car at the March Meet. My
dad had a Popular Hot Rodding centerfold of this car in my room when I was
a kid. Let's hope Tony will rebuild...I want to see more Nostalgia Pro
Stock cars like this one with the vintage wheels and dry hops (something
you don't see anymore).
I hope everyone likes my little Diamond P replay tribute.

Driving a Powerglide on the Street
This is the first drive of the Eaton-blown 363/Powerglide combination.
Literally the second time I started the engine - so I took it easy (sorry,
no burnouts or high-speed hijinks). This combination should go easy 9's.
I can't believe how driveable it is...
